exploded during the bush years, obama added on top of that. let's remember all the sequester does is shave off a little bit of the built-in growth of government spending. over the next ten years, the budget, even with the sequester, will go from $3.5 trillion to $5.9 trillion. we're still going to get $2.4 trillion more spending. we're just not going to get $2.5 trillion more spending. i view the sequester as a very tiny step in the right direction. >> jared, you look at some of these figure, if you include the emergency money more hurricane sandy, that just means we've had a 30% increase since 2008. now under the so-called sequester, we'll have a 5% increase. it's not like we're ripping the government to shreds. >> look, the way this works is you get negative fiscal impulse when you do less then th year than you did last year. let's go to the non-partisan congressional budget office. they told us on tuesday this year they expect the economy to grow 1.4%. i don't think there's anybody listening to my voice on our financial news network of cnbc who likes that number, 1.4%. i suspect you don
